Engineer to Order - What does Configure To Order mean?


The terms "make to stock" and "make to order" are used interchangeably in a Configure to Order (CTO) system. This is a group of parts called subassemblies that are mass-produced in advance, while finished goods are put together according to customer specifications. Orders placed by customers are promptly fulfilled when inventory is maintained at the component level.
